It is important to know where you stand on issues, and why. It's equally important to understand the position others take. Especially when those positions are the opposite of yours.

To understand the other side, you need to talk to them, and to read things written from their perspective. It might be unpleasant, but it's necessary...read the rest...

Hi Kent,

I read the entire article. Excellent observations. Thank you for also pointing out that by opening yourself up to someone else's viewpoint you run the real risk of changing your mind...

I'm always happy to change my mind for the better! :D

😄😇😄
